Owning a Toyota Electric Car

If you are new to driving an electric vehicle, we can help you with what to expect when you buy your first EV.

Will I save money driving an electric car?

In comparison to a conventional car, driving a bZ4X can save you money in running costs. Over a year, save up to £749* in fuel if you charge your car at home 80% of the time. Take advantage of off-peak energy tariffs to save even more money.

Looking after your bZ4X costs less too, pay less than a hybrid for a full service at a Toyota dealer, and spread maintenance costs with service plans.

The savings don’t stop here, with exemption from the congestion charge, and Ultra-Low Emission Zone in London, and free access to various low emission zones being implemented across the UK.

Charging your electric vehicle

Charging an EV takes longer than fuelling a conventional vehicle, but instead of stopping at a petrol station, you can enjoy the convenience of charging at home most of the time.

You may need to charge your EV at a public charger on longer journeys, with the number of chargers across the UK increasing every month, a bit of forward planning makes this easy.

Electric vehicle range

The distance you can expect to travel in your EV before recharging, is known as range.

As with any vehicle, you need to think about when you will refuel your car, EV owners tend to charge at home and work most of the time which easily becomes a habit.

There are a number of factors which influence your range, some of which you can impact to maximise efficiency.
